Trade with USA

Jan 11, 2018 | 10:59 1 So what products agricultural wise do the Americans benefit by trading with us?

What products do they like to get from us and which ones do they like to send to us?

Trying to figure out where closing he border off benefits them and hurts them? Reply With Quote
Jan 11, 2018 | 11:09 2 Not ag related but here's the top of the list.

In 2013, Canada was the top export market for 35 states, and exports to Canada across the country totaled $300.2 billion, according to the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative. The top commodities were vehicles, machinery, oil, and natural gas

I didn't know vehicles were commods and wtf is the deal with oil and gas? Reply With Quote
Jan 11, 2018 | 15:13 3 Some of these things are "regional convenience" - a good example is beef. A lot of beef comes into eastern Canada from the US whereas a lot of western beef goes south - it's closer and easier to import the beef from the US in the east. This is one of the advantages of having free trade between countries and something that agreements make easier. I agree with your previous comment that trade will go on regardless - that's always the case in these hyped up trade deals. If the US walks away from NAFTA which would be a foolish move on their part (but they are run by an imbecile so who knows?) we could always pull a Brexit on them and demand a divorce payment from the US of billions of dollars before they are allowed to leave!

From what I understand they really want our beef out west maybe because they get it too cheap? Wouldn't that cost their consumers a lot more without our beef? So ya good for their ranchers I guess.

But I wonder as in sheepwheat where do the sheep go?

But with softwood lumber and auto taxes he s added we d be stupid to just say it's ok he's obviously going to do
What ever the kook happens to think on any given day so
Maybe it's a good move to hammer back
If it's at a point where he doesn't care anyway. Reply With Quote
